New prototype front arms just off the mill. Allows you to adjust camber without changing caster.

It looks like it might be the exact shape of the body.

The front part of the chassis is the same as stock until about the front of the Servo. The rest going back approximately follows the contour of the inside of the body. It is a little narrower than the inside contour of the body. The goal was to allow more room for mounting electronics. There is enough room now to mount a Tekin RS or Black Diamond flat on the left side.

I am finishing up a few spacers and parts and will hopefully have most of it assembled tonight. I will post updated photos.

Testing Begins tomorrow at Timezone!

Troy

Yep Troy and his stuff is the real deal... his new WGT stuff is way outside the box and fast. looking forward seeing it up here tomorrow, our track has Thousand of laps developing and testing stuff from Mckune, CRC and Top, and I know this is going to be another hit.

Hopefully Available soon at: http://www.timezonehobbies.com/store/

BTW it looks awesome! Now I can model mine after yours. The only difference between the two is that I bought and used the Maclaren rear wing side pieces instead of the stock FGX rear wing...

Luosi that looks great! After seeing that and Troy's chassis prototype...I may just have to get me one of these too...I'm really liking my Exotech F1R but this SGX is really starting to get to the point where I would want one
